Pond at Metzger FarmThe Metzger Farm Open Space Master Plan was approved by the City Council on March 9, 2010. In a joint purchase, the City of Westminster and the City and County of Broomfield acquired the Metzger Farm, a 152-acre open space property on May 1, 2006.

The property is in the city of Westminster though it is bordered by Broomfield on its north and west sides. Metzger Farm is located in the northeast quadrant of the intersection of Lowell Boulevard and West 120th Avenue. The Broomfield-Westminster Open Space Foundation was established by the two governmental entities to oversee the management of Metzger Farm.

The Master Plan provides an overview of:
  • natural features and resources
  • farmstead history and building survey
  • proposed improvements such as trails, wildlife viewing, fishing, and building stabilization, as well as estimated costs/phasing
  • management practices

An open space grant from Adams County of $346,900 will be used along with funding from Broomfield and Westminster to complete the project.

With the first phase of improvements complete, the Metzger Farm opened to the public on November 10, 2012.
